Abstract : The invention relates generally to signal responsive apparatus and more particularly to an apparatus selectively responsive to multi-level DC pulse signals. It is directly intended for use in connection with so-called wire-guided torpedo systems. It provides a DC pulse command signal transmission and reception system including a command receiver having novel circuitry and yielding improved accuracy and reliability of command signal response. It provides a command receiver selectively responsive to bipolar, multi-level DC pulse command signals. It further provides a command receiver selectively responsive to multi-level DC pulse command signals and reliably operative under conditions of pulse waveform distortions imposed by a communication link.
